Former media advisor to Punjab CM appear in court

Bharat Inder Singh Chahal, media advisor to former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, today appeared before the Punjab and Haryana High Court in a contempt of court case.

Chandigarh, May 31 : Bharat Inder Singh Chahal, media advisor to former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, today appeared before the Punjab and Haryana High Court in a contempt of court case.

Chahal also appeared in a local court for the hearing of his anticipatory bail application.

While the court has adjourned the hearing of the case for tomorrow, a stay notice on his arrest in several cases has also been issued.

The court has also directed the vigilance sleuths to file an affidavit regarding the number of cases registered against him and the cases in which he has to be arrested by tomorrow.

"Chahal has appeared in person in the court today. A notice has been issued. Vigilance bureau has been asked to file an affidavit stating as to how many cases are registered against him and in how many cases he's to be arrested," Vinod Ghai, Chahal's counsel.

Chahal's counsels argued that it is a case of political vendetta since he was close to former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.

"Our argument has been that it is a case of political vendetta since he has been very close to ex- Chief Minister," said Ghai.

He has also filed an application that if in any case he were to be arrested then he should be given a week's notice.

The court has further directed Chahal not to leave Chandigarh and to appear before the court for proceedings tomorrow. He was directed to deposit his passport also.

The contempt case is scheduled for next hearing in July. Chahal is facing contempt case for allegedly interfering in the court proceedings in connection with the recruitment of his son as DSP in the sports quota.

The vigilance sleuths want him in the Ludhiana City scam and in a disproportionate assets case.
